IMO, removing the option to forward is a good idea although all one would  
have to do would be copy and paste it into another email.  Forwarding  
emails, again IMO, is not the best idea because as someone in my  
organization commented the emails "get legs" and end up in unexpected  
places and the sender may unexpectedly have to deal with questions that  
arise out of context.

At the end of April, Google announced several Gmail updates, including a 
new feature that would allow users to remove the option to forward, copy, 
download or print messages. It also offers senders the option to create 
expiration dates or revoke previously sent messages. 
This caught the attention of National Freedom of Information Coalition, 
which advocates for access to public records and information. The 
organization's board President Mal Leary sent an open letter to Google CEO 
Sundar Pichai warning of the new feature's unintended consequences.
